  • Equipment submittals
  • Testing and training submittals
  • Operation and maintenance manuals

PROGRAMMING, NETWORKS AND SOFTWARE

Certified in multiple PLC, HMI, reporting, and database application software packages, our staff of programmers and network specialists can handle all of your software needs. With tens of thousands of simplex and duplex monitoring, control, and SCADA system installed, we are able to meet varied project requirements.

  • Requirements analysis
  • Design/development testing
  • PLC programming
  • SCADA/HMI programming
  • Database-driven reporting
  • Network architecture design
  • Security evaluations
  • Firewall hardware and software setup
  • Custom software/driver development

TELEMETRY AND COMMUNICATIONS

For decades, Primex has provided a full range of telemetry and remote access solutions for water distribution, wastewater conveyance, and industrial controls applications, including:

  • Computer modeled radio path studies
  • Radio path verification studies and site surveys
  • LAN/WAN design and implementation

PANEL AND SYSTEM FABRICATION

From modifying panel enclosures to applying state-of-the-art finishes or the latest in software-controlled automation — all of our control panels can be assembled for use in an array of applications. Our assembly technicians use the latest in computer-generated drafting methods to ensure our customers’ control panels that look as good as they function.Panels are built and listed in-house to one or more of the following certifications:

  • UL508A open control panels
  • UL508A enclosed control panels
  • UL913 panels relating to hazardous locations (class I, II and II) with intrinsically safe extensions
  • UL panels for service equipment use

SYSTEM TESTING AND COMMISSIONING

Every panel and project Primex produces undergoes a rigorous checkout procedure before shipping to ensure that the system performs as expected, per project requirements. Our standardized approach includes:

  • Nameplate and labeling review
  • System mechanical and wiring integrity
  • System power-up and electrical integrity
  • Software/programming loading
  • System functional test and description of operations review
  • Telemetry and communications reviewWe encourage customer factory acceptance tests whenever possible to help ensure smooth implementation and start-ups. Also our project managers, programmers, and service technicians involved throughout the project will perform commissioning and start-up services.

FIELD SERVICES

From system and instrumentation checkout to start-up, our staff qualified service technicians is capable of starting up a system and providing the necessary training to operators.

  • System start-up and training
  • Instrumentation calibration and commissioning
  • System troubleshooting
  • Telephone
  • Spare and replacement parts
  • Preventative maintenance service and programs
